If You Are Building a Hospital, KONE Solutions Can Help Save Lives

Building a hospital is a complex and critical endeavor that involves careful planning, coordination, and a focus on creating an environment that prioritizes patient care, operational efficiency, and the well-being of staff and visitors. In today's fast-paced healthcare landscape, where every moment is precious, the efficient movement of people within a hospital is paramount. Seamlessly controlling and optimizing people flow can significantly impact care delivery, streamline operations, and ultimately save lives.
At the heart of achieving these goals lies the integration of advanced people flow control and people movement solutions, including hospital elevators, escalators, and automatic doors. In this blog, we will delve into the transformative solutions provided by KONE, the world's leading elevator and escalator manufacturer, that enable hospitals worldwide to optimize their people flow control and people movement.

Leveraging advanced elevator systems, intelligent escalators, and facilitated access control solutions, KONE people flow solutions empower hospitals to create a smooth, efficient, and safe flow of individuals throughout their facilities.

Smart Elevators Improving Patient Flow

With state-of-the-art technologies such as destination control systems and predictive maintenance, KONE smart elevators enable hospitals to optimize the flow of patients and staff, minimize waiting times, and enhance the overall safety and comfort of everyone within the hospital's premises.

1. Predictive Maintenance

A technology that uses data analytics and real-time monitoring to detect potential issues in elevator systems before they become significant problems. Predictive maintenance algorithms can identify potential faults and notify maintenance teams proactively by analyzing parameters such as motor performance, door operations, and elevator usage patterns. Predictive maintenance for healthcare facilities allows for timely repairs. It reduces the risk of unexpected breakdowns, minimizing disruptions to patient flow and ensuring that elevators are always available when needed.

2. Destination Control Systems

Furthermore, smart elevators employ destination control systems that optimize elevator operations based on individual floor requests. These systems use advanced algorithms to analyze passenger traffic patterns and determine the most efficient elevator assignment.

3. Specific Bed Elevators Design

One key area where hospital elevators differ from other elevators is bed elevators . Specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of patient transportation within hospitals, hospital bed elevators offer spacious cabins and specialized features that ensure the comfort and security of patients on stretchers or beds. These elevators are equipped with adjustable lighting and ventilation to create a safe and pleasant environment during transportation.

4. User-Friendly Interfaces

These interfaces allow passengers to operate the elevators effortlessly while minimizing physical contact and maintaining hygiene. User-friendly interfaces such as touchless controls and personalized settings are becoming increasingly prevalent in modern hospital elevators to enhance the overall experience of patients, staff, and visitors.

5. Integration Within Hospital Systems

Seamless communication and integration with hospital systems are also critical aspects of people movement solutions. By connecting elevators and other systems, hospitals can achieve synchronized operations and prioritize service based on patient needs. Appointment scheduling systems can also be linked to elevators, ensuring efficient coordination and reducing waiting times for patients and medical staff.

Modern Escalators & Electric Doors Role in Enhancing People Flow in Hospitals

In addition to smart elevators, smart and modern escalators play a vital role in facilitating accessibility between fewer hospital floors. With wide and spacious escalators, individuals on stretchers, those with mobility aids, and medical equipment can move effortlessly between different facility levels without even getting into an elevator.

Moreover, electric doors are essential components of accessible hospital design. These doors have sensors that detect movement and open automatically, allowing easy passage for individuals with mobility challenges. The automatic operation of electric doors minimizes contact points. It supports infection control measures, contributing to a safer and healthier hospital environment.
